This deal for Sony WH-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones is back again and it is a great one to get in on! This time, instead of buying from the seller through eBay, you would buy it directly from the reseller – Secondipity. I have bought these exact headphones from them and they worked just like new (these are refurbished by Sony or a Sony-authorized refurbisher).
Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Headphones for $179 [Refurbished]

The only thing about the Sony headphones is that they are not as comfortable when hanging around the neck. This could entirely be a user-preference based on neck size/comfort but for me, the Bose were more comfortable. That is definitely not a huge dealbreaker for me since I rarely hang them around my neck.
The Sony headphones have great battery life, excellent noise cancelling ability and a really good companion app to customize the headphones to what you want. One more thing that may sound like a small thing but is huge for me is that they are USB-C charged. Just about every piece of tech I travel with is USB-C so that makes one less cable I need to bring on my trips now.
These are killer headphones for noise cancelling, especially on airplanes! It does a much better job than Bose with it and they show that Sony has really put the work into the 3rd generation models!
If you don’t believe me on the claim that the Sony headphones are better than Bose, do a search. There are a lot of tech gurus out there that feel the same way. Or, you can always try them out for yourself at your local tech store!
